For Mobile apps, what device and carrier are you using? HTC Nexus One: AT&T
I have added my Google Voice phone number to my PayPal account. I cannot link it to my account, to get money, send money, check your balance, or manage my account from my phone using simple text messages. To link my Google Voice number requires PayPal to send an SMS message to my Google Voice account. I cannot receive an SMS text from PayPal.

Google Voice does not support short codes (send/receive from a number that is not formatted like regular phone number) at this time unless they come from Google. Use your regular cell phone number.

I believe the answer from Hillsborough is correct. When I was trying to resolve the problem with PayPal the customer representative suggested I contact my mobile provider because "I do know you need to have Premium Txt Messaging set up with your phone company to receive texts from 6-digit numbers. I know I had
to call my phone provider to enable this for me".
Thank you Hillsborough for corroborating the information I received from PayPal.
